After a bar brawl with an off-duty cop, aspiring thug Fan is sentenced to three months in juvenile detention like Hong Kong’s Sha Tsui Detention Center, which practices military-style rehabilitation. Insults and abuse are core tenets of the treatment, carried out by the bored, jaded staff, where an occasional true believer lingers among the guards.

Hong Kong making prison film is something unusual, but they do.
Just like the premise I found the film somewhat sensational but high quality.
Neo Yau Hawk-sau deserves distinction for excellence in acting, for playing a very different character, a gang leader convicted and taken to a detention center. The infamous disruptive and arrogant is quickly destroyed by the sadistic guards, whose shocking brutality and humiliation led him to attempt suicide on read more his third day behind the bars.
A dark and oppressive story, animated only by the hesitant bond of the characters with other prisoners and with the presence of a solitary and sympathetic guard, Ho, with prisoners offers a nightmare account of institutional depravity, based on real events.
